FACILITIES- Toilets and cafe

TERRAIN  - Some steep and boggy sections, open moorland so navigation would be hard in poor visibility, mixture of moorland, stone paths and grass paths


Today we met up with some Hiking friends to compete 2 more wainwrights.

From the car park we went back onto the road and crossed the small pack horse bridge, turn left and head towards the tarn with the path climbing to your right.

Its simple to follow up to Grange fell on your right, the path on the summit is not clear but you find the highest point on the summit with its rocky formations. Return back down Grange fell to the path and go straight ahead, you can see Great Crag in the distance, the path between here is quite boggy, but you can see trod marks as you make your way to the next fell.

Once you reach the base the path leads you to the summit between rocks and heather but its easy to follow.

We returned the same way to the car park.
